Today, UK-based wireless provider EE switched on its 5G network in six cities (via Android Police). Along with turning on 5G, it also launched its first 5G device: the OnePlus 7 Pro 5G. This makes the 7 Pro the first 5G capable smartphone to sell commercially in the UK.
The OnePlus 7 Pro 5G is the same device you can buy worldwide OnePlus.com – it can only acquire 5G networks. It even comes in the same Nebula Blue color.
You can head to EE's official website to buy 5G 7 Pro now if you live in the UK. It costs you 59 pounds (~ $ 74) per month for the device with 10 GB of 5G data. In addition, you must pay a £ 170 (~ $ 215) installment for the phone. There are other plans with more 5G data and lower installments – you'll have to shop.
However, you can't buy the device – you need to add and pay a wireless plan per month. As such, we can't really indicate the difference in total price between the regular ones OnePlus 7 Pro and its 5G counterpart.
The six cities EE's 5G network is currently operating in London, Cardiff, Edinburgh, Belfast, Birmingham and Manchester. However, the 5G service will not cover the entire area – you only get 5G speeds in some parts of the cities.
Eventually, EE will also sell other 5G smartphones, including the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G, Oppo Reno 5G, and LG V50 ThinQ 5G. There were plans for a 5G Huawei device, but it was for the time being at stake.
